  • Speaking of Kids

    Speaking of Kids is a podcast series from First Focus on Children that uncovers why children are an afterthought in politics. In this episode, Rep. Jimmy Gomez (D-CA), chair of the Dads Caucus, talks about how moms have been the “default parent” and the importance of fathers stepping up for kids both at home and in Congress.

  • Children's Week 2024

    Each June, First Focus on Children hosts Children’s Week with a schedule of events aimed at urging Congress to better protect the health, safety, and well-being of America’s children. This year, throughout the week of June 9-15, we look forward to working with members of Congress and our partner advocates to bring awareness to some of the most pressing issues facing the nation’s children.

  • Children's Budget 2023

Our analysis finds that U.S. spending on children — both here and abroad — accounts for less than 10% of the federal budget and has decreased nearly 16% in just one year.
